5.0 out of 5 stars Titanium 7 July 2014
By Scarlet Jupiter TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Sia has had an unconventional trajectory; diagnosed with Graves disease, boyfriend killed in a car accident, addiction to drugs and alcohol, attempted suicide. Plus, she hates fame so much that she poses with a paper bag over her head, and performs with her back facing audiences. Responsible for a plethora of international pop smashers for some of pop's biggest names, and while working on many other projects, there was still time to produce an own record. As the title and cover art might reveal, Sia goes back to her darker side for this, her 6th studio album, spiralling into destructive depths of weakness, vulnerability, desperation and struggles, all returning points for her.

Longtime fans know what to expect from her, new followers are probably curious to learn about the person behind the colossal hits. Perhaps all too aware of what the public wants from her, Sia gives the public exactly what they want. She offers strong and well produced pop ballads, some uptempo tracks, and the occasional slower numbers, all accompanied with her unique and always impressive voice, the sound of someone singing for their life. She is dabbling with pop, experimenting once again with indie pop, electronica, acid jazz, soul, dance, and trip-hop. Produced by Lily Allen's former collaborator Greg Kurstin, they have sculpted a beautiful masterpiece of an album.

Her enrapturing talent and torment shines throughout "1000 Forms of fear"'s 49 minutes. Very often I found myself paying more attention to the lyric metaphors and the dramatic vocals, rather than enjoying the songs. Sia has a certain vibe in her music which, although it cannot be missed, it tends to overshadow the sonic excellence of this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sia shines bright like a diamond. 9 July 2014
By D. C. Stolk TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The enigmatic Australian singer-songwriter Sia Furler makes a courageous return from the sidelines with her sixth studio album “1000 Forms Of Fear,” which follows on 2010′s “We Are Born.” In recent years, she avoided the limelight deliberately, but behind the scenes she was responsible for a number of huge hits. For example, songs from Sia Furler could be found on albums by Katy Perry (Prism), Britney Spears (Britney Jean), Beyonce (Beyonce), Kylie Minogue (Kiss Me Once), Shakira (Shakira) and Jennifer Lopez (AKA). Some of those big hits were Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” David Guetta’s “Titanium” and Ne-Yo's "Let Me Love You" to name just of few.

The Sia-signature - like the vocal dips and mid-tempo melancholy of "Diamonds" - that the now 39-year-old singer and songwriter stamped on those hits, can be found once again on this album. Songs like “Burn The Pages,” “Straight For The Knife,” “Hostage” and “Big Girls Cry” sound as if they were intended, respectively, for Katy Perry, Lana Del Rey, Shakira or Rihanna. Furler wrote most of these songs with Greg Kurstin, who produced this album and also worked on recent albums by Lily Allen, Lykke Li, Tegan & Sara and Pink. This collaboration provides for a dozen irresistible pop melodies, although Furler’s reluctance to promote this album - she does minimal press and refuses to be photographed - might be the only obstacle for global success, although her impressive vocal acrobatics should do the work for her.

What struck me the most about “1000 Forms Of Fear,” is that how this sublime record is a personal victory for the once addicted and suicidal singer.

4.0 out of 5 stars the poppier end of her spectrum 2 Oct 2014
Format:Audio CD
The twin personalities of edgy Australian songwriter Sia, masquerading simultaneously as both the glitzy pop icon writing for top ten artists, and the creator of the touching song “Breathe Me” - featured on Six Feet Under, and incidentally my first exposure to her music, through my girlfriend; a huge fan of the show - both rear their heads on 1000 Forms of Fear. Her affecting touch is couched subtly in amongst the soaring vocals and polished production that form the hallmarks of her style of pop.

Such juxtaposition shines through nicely on second track “Big Girls Cry”, a nice progression from album opener “Chandelier” which falls at the brasher end of the spectrum, along with “Elastic Heart” and “Burn the Pages”, complete with a hugely successful Youtube video. In the verses, her voice drifts and dances tenderly on the gentle piano lines, whilst the choruses swell and soar with a strong string and rhythm backing. She takes her time on “Eye of the Needle”, another of the more tender tracks, whilst keeping the ferocity in her voice, which ascends gloriously into an emotionally climactic end section, one of the highlights of the record.

Fans of her less poppy, more inconspicuous music may have preferred more subtlety and warmth in her vocal performance. I myself wonder how her songs would have sounded slightly more stripped back; for example, the style of the intro of “Straight for the Knife” could have been drawn out for longer before adding more instrumentation, giving more space to her vocals. The penultimate song (and my favourite) “Cellophane”, is closest to what I'd want to hear more of, opening with percussion and vocals only, before slowly drawing in more instruments, including electric guitar flitting between ringing broken chords and muted power chords.
